Posted by Accelerate Fund | May 15, 2024

Edmonton, AB, May 15, 2024 – Accelerate Fund III today announced its investment in the CARE Group of Companies (CARE Group), an Alberta-based health innovation and technology company focused on digital mental health technologies and programs. Their strategic financing round attracted over $2M and included participation from Accelerate Fund, strategic angel investors and family offices.

CARE Group is reshaping the landscape of mental health care with innovative digital health technologies and programs, tailored to address the unique needs of underserved communities including indigenous populations and remote areas. The company’s platforms integrate virtual care with real-time monitoring and personalized patient engagement, delivering improved health outcomes at a lower cost.

“As global mental health worsens and barriers to access treatment persist, millions of people are not getting the care they need, especially in our rural, remote and indigenous communities,” explains Ray Yue, Co-Founder and CEO of CARE Group. “Our digital mental health technologies and programs are designed to meet the diverse needs of each person where they are at in their own journey, on their schedule and at their convenience – our tech helps to improve patient outcomes and save lives.”

CARE Group also offers customizable enterprise virtual care platforms for health organizations, indigenous communities, clinics, and service providers to enhance their intake processes, streamline patient management and prioritize quality care. Community agencies such as the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Center (CACAC) are innovating with CARE Group technology to expand their capacity in providing essential mental health supports to youth and their families. Additionally, a growing roster of urban, remote, First Nations and rural communities are using CARE Group technology to enhance community mental health and addictions supports. 

“As clinicians with decades of experience in healthcare, the founding team deeply understands the needs and challenges from both a patient and service provider perspective,” said Yasmine Al-Hussien, Investment Associate, Accelerate Fund II & III.  “We’ve been impressed with CARE Group’s strong traction to modernize and digitize mental health treatment within clinics and agencies, rural communities and indigenous communities. We are excited to support the team’s continuing success.”

CARE Group will use the funds to accelerate its growth, expand into new markets across Canada and the U.S., and further build its team.
